Designing a passionate life requires nurturing of your relationships. Relationships are the key to our lives. When I speak of relationships I am speaking about all types including yourself, parents, siblings, romantic partners, business partners, co-workers, customers, children, and vendors. The list can go on and on.
Relationships are key elements to living a passionate life as well. Without good relationships you aren't going to make it very far down the road with your passions. You need people to support you in your passion in one manner or another. Relationships are the foundation of functioning on this planet in any culture.
What do you do to nurture yours? Ask yourself the following questions, write down your answers and come up with some action items to nurture your relationships.
How can I create a deeper connection to myself?
How can I improve my relationship with my parents?
How can I take my service to my customers to the next level?
What areas in my romantic relationship could use more love and understanding? How will I accomplish this?
What can I do to improve my communications with my co-workers?
How can I contribute to a higher level of team participation with my business partners?
How can I bring fun to my relationships with my siblings?
How can I contribute to a deeper connection with my children?
Nurturing relationships is an ongoing process and one to be aware of in all dealings with people, even people you meet in passing. Think about it, what makes or breaks your day? For me, it is usually the interactions that I have with other people. If they went well, I feel good about my day. If there were challenges then I don't feel as good and my energy level is low.
How you handle and nurture your relationships has a direct affect on your energy level, your feeling of well being, and the ease with which your life flows. Time spent nurturing and improving all of your relationships will reward you on many levels.
